Im-Mi Para/Site

Liping Ting

Installation / Performance

At Avatar, the Taiwanese artist develops the sound component of his project Im-Mi Para / Site realized as part of a three-week residency at Le Lieu.

For the project Im-Mi Para / Site, Liping Ting develops a sculptural installation nourished and stimulated by a sound composition of polyphonic voices, mixing both silences and cacophonies. Using the spiral as a guideline for her research, she explores movement, rhythm, breath, hiatus, suspension and silence through the body and voice.

The performative and installation work of Liping Ting is presented from November 17 to December 10 at Le Lieu, 345 du Pont Street in Québec City. During this period, the artist invests the gallery of Le Lieu and makes several performances that will occur each afternoon, from Thursday to Sunday.
